Daily review is also your post.
This provides Standardistas the opportunity to review events of the day.
The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).
Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
Re Kris Faifoi. It was a mistake to offer to speed up the application. But after that he keep to the boundaries.
I think Jason Kerrison (? Name) has shown himself in a poor light. Try to use a friend to get a favour and when it doesn’t go his way, spits the dummy and goes to the media. Not good Jason
Kris was dumb stringing him along, and pretty nasty that he was stiched up in the media but desperate people do desperate things.
Let's face it, if he was straight with him in the first place, wrote a letter of support as he was allowed to do he wouldn't be in this mess. Shows poor judgement. Bit surprising really
Nowhere near bad enough to warrant anything drastic. Non issue stirred to maximum by no news National.
Tedious isn't it this endless litany of smears from Bridges. And to be cleared will not lead to an apology will it. A Bridge too far.
Idiot Bridges is on Stuff mouth open wide obviously being forceful.
Caption: "National Party leader Simon Bridges said, if Faafoi had acted on the text messages, it was a conflict of interest, an abuse of power, and "he's covered it up".
I'm disappointed in Bridges not going the whole hog: National Party leader Simon Bridges said, if Faafoi had murdered a broadcaster it was illegal, a conflict of interest, an abuse of power, and "he's covered it up".
And disappointed in Stuff for not screwing more out of it.
Problem is ianmac most people only get to pick up on the odd smear. So in time they get to view the govt. in a negative light which is the aim of the exercise.
Only political nut jobs like us know the extent of the smearing and how insidious it really is.
Politicians never apologise to each other …it would be admitting they were wrong. Bridges is still waiting for Robertson's apology over National "hacking" the budget web site. And I don't think Winston has ever apologised to anyone?
That's good of him ….I didn't know he had apologised to media. I still can't remember him apologising to another politician though (but I could be wrong). If I was Anne Tolley or Paula Bennett I certainly wouldn't be holding my breath. I still believe it was Tolley that leaked his pension details…..didn't she even admit in court to telling family members?
IF Kerrison broke the story to the media, given that Faifoi said he was his friend and given our totally feral politics/media world which anyone with a smidgeon of brain knows about, my suggestion is he start writing some autobiographical song.
'Scumbag lowlife fuckwit' would seem to be an appropriate title.
Is that Shazam!'s Phil Schofield looking at Dick's pics?
The moral compass of Simon Bridges:
He was betrayed by a friend, who made public the details of a private conversation. He was outraged.
Kris Faafoi was betrayed by a friend, who made public the details of a private conversation. Simon was … not outraged. He was delighted.
Yup that image is the singular truth of that UK election – the middle class on social media where they ignore the poor and homeless left behind, and those who would represent them dismissed as a pariah.
Doesn't look good for Mr Corbyn when even the labour party bible the New Statesman doesnt back him for PM
God Save the Queen – Sex Pistols.
Going to be a pretty big Cabinet meeting on Monday when they pass the big infrastructure spend signaled by Minister of Finance at the Labour Conference last weekend.
Apart from the school maintenance programme, I suspect Robertson's list will include:
– A fuller upgrade of Northern rail line to Whangarei, together with capital to build the line to Northport directly
– Acceleration of Dunedin hospital, and more Auckland superclinics
– Acceleration of HNZ Auckland projects e.g. along light rail corridors and CRL
Maybe a little start-off couple of Billion for the new UDA
– A big chunk for regional road upgrades e.g. sealing a big percentage of unsealed roads
– An expressway into Tauranga
– Buying regional passenger rail trains, and building stations for Hamilton and Tauranga
– Bring forward light rail from Auckland to Kumeu
If he's feeling ambitious he'll signal:
– Full rail line electrification across network
– Commitment to rebuild every state house that needs it
– Acceleration of Wellsford to Brynderwyn expressway
– Shift of NZ Navy from Devonport to Marsden Whangarei
– Rebuild of pylon and high voltage line network older than 1970
Fun time to be in government that's for sure.
What have the Romans ever done for us?
No one can accuse this government of being fast at getting stuff done.
Rome was not built in a day.
Rome is a mess
Would have been a lot worse if it had been built in a day.
Festina lente (hurray in a measured way)
I recall Labour promises of commuter rail to Christchurch, so that could be added to the list.
Simon (Loser of the Opposition) is a hypocrite.
🕺 😂 Awesome clip, thanks for posting Fireblade
Just great. Thanks Fireblade. Wish I could copy it and post it around.
The National Party are hypocrites and liars.
And thanks again Fireblade. In both cases I wonder when journalists will question the virtuous Bridges?
Peter Thiel is part of a group who could be described Doomsday preppers ,,, " the New Yorker ran another piece about the super-rich who were making preparations for a grand civilisational crackup; speaking of New Zealand as a “favored refuge in the event of a cataclysm”
Thiel himselfr has expressed being influenced by a manifesto,,,, " The Sovereign Individual: How to Survive and Thrive During the Collapse of the Welfare State."
The Sovereign citizen ideology has been designated as potentially terrorist and is on the watch list in the Usa ,,,, presumably as the Sovereign survivalists do not recognize the legitimacy of Governments , the authority of the state ,,, or in having to pay tax.
I would be very very surprised if these Mad Max King rats did not have a military styled armoury full of weapons and amo ,,,,, usa gun culture coupled with their survivalist mentality ,,,, makes weapons possession a common sense assumption.
,,,, around the 1 minute mark for the Sovereinites
